Motion detection shuts off after a while


Everything seemed to work fine until I upgraded or tried once to use the schedule motion detection, or possibly if I change the notifications from off to on or vice versa after resetting eberything. It did seem to work before I paid for the app. I’ve stopped using the schedule motion detection, and would be fine with it constantly getting motiokn detection, but even after I restart the ipad and set the camera up again and turn on motion detection it only seems to work for about 2 hours. It never records again unless I restart again. When I try to use the android app to turn motion detection back on because I notice it not working, after I turn it on, I exit the app and when I come back, motion detection is turned back off. I can only turn on motion detection with the app from the moments screen. If I use the wheel on the preview box, the one that gives more options like scheduling, if I try to turn motion detection back on from there it says, “Failed to apply the new camera setting. Please try again. (1017)” When I do try again, I get the dame message again.

I finally got guided access to work and it seems to be helping a lot. Thanks. But, now after it had been working, I had some connection issues earlier today, which seemed to resolve itself. But… the motion detection seems to have turned itself off again. And I still have the problem when I try to turn it on from the viewer it shuts it back off right away. Every time I go back into that menu it’s in the off position.
